West Corp. Layoffs

Topics regarding layoffs at West Corp.


Do you think anyone even proposed the idea of pay cuts instead of mass firings? Lots of new executives that can afford to take a temporary salary reduction. I would have been okay with that. Other companies I know have done 20% cuts across the... —  read more 


Know your rights- severance isn’t typically a trade of for your silence. HR is there to protect the company, not you. You don’t have to sign anything and they can’t withhold pay for work performed for any reason. https://candor.co/guides/layoff/


Anybody know if Intrado is still the vendor for Directv’s IVR? Through what was West Interactive. Wasn’t sure if after ATT bought Directv they finished going in-house with it or if there actually still is a Directv hub at W100’s 1st floor.

Start looking now

People are being let go. Open reqs are being closed. Morale is low. More work is being piled on. If you’re not doing the job of 2 or 3 people for pennies you’re not a team player. Apollo is running this into the ground.

RIF’s Feb 5

And more lay offs today. Some of the very best people. The bottom line is that Intrado does not care for its people. But by now, that should come as no surprise. When the majority of us are swamped with workloads and asked to take on more.... and we... —  read more 

Policy Manual Change!!!!

Just found out they changed the policy manual on us a month ago and didn’t let anyone know. And it’s big. The old policy manual has an entire page dedicated to severance pay, how much you get, based on how long you’ve been with the company. IT’S GONE... —  read more

Sweet, more benefits being eroded across NA. Even less reasons to stick around. More expenses will need to be fronted out-of-pocket. So awesome! /sarc

GTS All-Hands Meeting

Got an invite this morning for the GTS All-Hands meeting next week. Seems odd. There's no description other than dial-in info, whereas usually there's some spiel about the presentation. Plus, the turnaround seems pretty short; usually, these invites... —  read more

Mobile, Alabama got hit today. At least two people I know of were made redundant this morning. Heard some other areas around Intrado were impacted as well. Anyone have any details?


How long has it taken you all to get your severance package?

From a client's perspective

I'm a ex-Westy that was laid off and now a client of West. I got to say, the whole trend West is doing now of offshoring all their support centers, is going to be West's next major downfall. When I have to call a support center, I feel like I'm... —  read more

More Layoffs on the Way

Just a heads up, hearing that more layoffs are on the way. Possibly to skew their Q4 numbers before the end of the year. Like when will this end?? This company is TOXIC!!!

Your Fault, Your Responsibility

The writing is on the wall...READ IT! If you are still there and you are NOT interviewing for another company, it’s your FAULT. Take responsibility for YOUR actions.

PTO getting flipped to sick time?

All but 40 hrs of your PTO is getting moved to a "Sick days" bucket. No doubt so they don't have to pay it out when/if you are fired/leave. This can't be legal can it? Especially in NE where PTO is deemed to be an earned benefit, like... —  read more

Intrado Leadershit Series

This is a f—ing slap in the face. The topic is Resiliency? To learn more about adapting positive to change, bouncing back after a setback, having a 'never give up mindset'??? F— you Intrado. This is a huge slap in the face. We haven't heard sh–... —  read more 

Do hourly employees receive severance if let go?

Each month I feel like a good chunk of us get by only because we are essential to getting things out in a timely matter, but now with process documentation becoming more frequent, I believe it is only a matter of time before my team and I are let go... —  read more 

The 9th came and went...

And not a word in regards to raises. Yep, we are children and can't be trusted with information. Smashing. Just tell us there's a delay or SOMETHING. ANYTHING.

Where are people leaving to???

I'm one of the people that got hit in one of the lay off waves. I've since found employment elsewhere but not for the better. What companies have ex-Westys managed to land at next after being laid off or proactively found before it happened to them?... —  read more
